Alloy 625 Wire Description
Alloy 625 is a non-magnetic, corrosion and oxidation resistant, nickel-chromium alloy. This material can be used because of its high strength, excellent uniform corrosionresistance, resistance to stress cracking and excellentpitting resistance in 500°-600°F (260-316°C) water.
Its outstanding strength and toughness in the temperature range from cryogenic to 2000°F (1093°C) are derived primarily from the solid solution effects of the refractory metals columbium and molybdenum in a nickel-chromium matrix. The alloy has excellent fatigue strength and stress corrosion cracking to chloride ions.

Alloy 625 can be cold rolled to achieve the temper properties required by specific customers and/or manufacturing requirements. Contact Ulbrich Wire for details.
Refer to NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations
Standard Wire Finishes
Extra Clean: (XC) Extra clean is also referred to as “bright annealed” or “bright annealed and cold rolled”
Grease (round wire only): Drawn in a heavy grease produces an “Ultra bright” finish for decorative applications
Soap (round wire only): Soap is used as a lubricant in the drawing process and is not removed. It acts as a lubricant during customer part forming operation. A soap finish is available in tempered products.
Plated: Many plating options are available.
∗Special finishes are available: Contact Ulbrich Wire Sales with special finish and plating requests.
